What sound can do for your designs
Recognising the knowledge gap that exists for many architects and specifiers when it comes to the complexities of acoustic design in building project planning, this CPD will further equip and empower architects, specifiers and designers with easily accessible information on certified acoustic solutions verified for every building application area by third-party-experts.

Because acoustic design in the built environment can be complex it often is lower down in planning priorities. Consequently there's a risk that the best, most appropriate materials are not used, effecting long-term health and wellbeing of occupants for generations to come. Through this CPD, best practice acoustic design is upheld and not overlooked in the built environment at the outset of each project, by inspiring the next generation of designers to understand how sound impacts human health.

By the end of this seminar delegates should:
1. Understand the importance of sound and the negative impact of noise in many areas of the built environment.
2. Understand the need for acoustics in the modern workplace with evidence to many staff / occupants benefits.
3. Know the key principles of good acoustic design.
4. Know how acoustics can help you meet your clients brief and support sustainability, wellbeing, productivity and inclusivity.
5. Understand best practice acoustic design in line with the RIBA Plan of Work.
